The Southeastern Deuces Club hosted the Deuce Show,,age,health and a few members passing away had a lot to do with the show being discontinued.

I have been to many of their show over the years and always enjoyed it but it takes a club to be able to do a one year only show within the Shades of the Past show.

We decided before we sent in the registration form for the show that the Deuce sedan is going to stay in the garage this year and we were going to the Ranch Wagon . HRP

If you stay on the main road you are right it will take forever to drive from one end of Pigeon Forge to the other. HRP
Before I moved to Middle TN I lived in Knoxville for 5 years and HRP I wholeheartedly agree. Get off the beaten path and you can get thru

Mike gonna miss seeing that Bad 56' again. I just texted my buddy to get pictures of your hood hinges. Want to see if you running stock hinges for sure. You are not doing an open house this fall are you?

You all enjoy the show and somebody post pictures and you can start with HRP's wagon and that sweet 56' of Mike's

We went for the early part of the week, have to get back to the old grind this weekend. It was my first time there and was a lot of fun. I cant see sitting in a lawn chair 12 hours like some folks were doing but we took the opportunity to walk both sides of the parkway. Lots and lots for sale, but I didn't see many bargains. I bet it is hopping today.

If you don't like 6 lane parking lots, motel and restaurant price GOUGING,rude cops hot no shade locations for the show and diesel trucks,just stay home. That's what I have been doing since the late 80's. I have no intention of ever going again.

The price Gouging, rude cops, hot with no shade locations for the rod run has been going on since the Shades started. Diesel trucks just the last few years. Like everything else, good things all come to an end.

Wait until next weekend,,that's when the police get a work out with all muscle cars and 4 wheel drive stuff.

I've been here since Wednesday and I haven't seen any stupid or cops,,one thing I will agree on,,it is HOT,,our room rate was cheaper this year than last and we are at the same place,,but it ain't cheap.

Were having a good time with old friends that we see once a year and it's a vacation. HRP

There are more cars/vendors at the car show than last year. The number of cars for sale along the parkway about the same as last year.

At least the rod run is no longer in that open field dust bowl with NO trees. Dollywoods parking lot shouldn't be as dusty.

Had a great time at the Shades. Yes it was hot. I didn't see or any Police issues. The cost of the hotel room was within reason. Yes traffic was heavy on the main road but it is always heavy on 411 (its a resort town folks!)
